Just thought I'd start a list and see if people want to add to it. :D

1. You start noticing which pictures on Flickr have chromatic aberrations.

2. You know the difference between a CCD sensor and CMOS sensor even though you shouldn't.

3. You start complaining that the picture on the TV "looks too soft".

15. You dress your wife up all in white so you have a human reflector to go with those 18% grey kids. :D
